Narrative

A glacier flowing in an east-north-easterly direction from Mt Harker into the northern part of the Wilson Piedmont Glacier on the coast of Victoria Land. Though this feature was indicated on charts of the NAE, 1901-04, and the BAE, 1907-09, it was named by the BAE, 1910-13. Named for Frank Debenham, geologist wit hthe naming expedition and a member of the Granite Harbour Party. Professor Debenham, OBE, MA, BSc, accompanied the BAE, 1907-09, to the Ross Sea before joining Scott's party. He was appointed Director of the Scott Polar Research Institute at Cambridge, England, on its foundation in 1925, and was also appointed Professor of Geography at Cambridge University in 1930.
